April favorites with KBShimmer polish, The Avocado Green mattress, and Thrive Causesmetics

I have several items, whether sent by a PR company or purchased myself, that I’m ready to rave about. Hopefully these items are things you’ve wondered about or wanted. Maybe you’ll learn about something new that you just didn’t know you needed!!

Avocado Green Mattress

Let me start with our new mattress, Avocado Green Mattress. I have to tell you that this wasn’t my idea and that my husband had to convince me. It all started with reviews in Consumers Report and from there it ended up in my bedroom. I was sure that it wouldn’t be comfortable and that we would be sorry to see our old mattress go. But it’s proving to be a pleasant buy. It wasn’t cheap for a King Size mattress with a pillow top (Euro pillow-top with 2 additional inches of plush natural latex for added pressure relief & eco-luxury,permanently attached) though. Neither my husband nor I have been waking up with a sore back. I’ve only had insomnia one night since using it and it had nothing to do with the mattress since I knew within a minute of laying down that I just wasn’t going to fall asleep.

Our natural mattress features 100% natural latex rubber, GOTS organic certified wool, GOTS organic certified cotton and up to 1,414 pocketed support coils. No polyester, polyurethane foams or toxic fire retardants are used. Or explore our Vegan Mattress made without wool.

There’s a 100 night sleep guarantee but we don’t think we’re going to need that warranty. If you’ve wavered about a Bed in a Box like I did then you might be just as surprised. It’s great to realize that we have something that’s not bad for the environment too.

Thrive Causematics lipliner and liquid lipstick

THRIVE CAUSEMATICS is a brand that is basically new to me. I had previously used their eyebrow pencil which I thought was outstanding but that particular one has been discontinued and I’ve ordered their new one to compare. What I did buy that I’m happy with is their Matte Legacy Lipstick and Liner Set in Kaisa and Em. I really just wanted the Em lipliner since the color is what I dream about but rather than pay shipping I decided to try their liquid lipstick too. (I’m crazy like that.)

Em Lipliner and Kaisa Matte Legacy Liquid Lipstick

The lipliner shade is a blush pink and I love it. I’ll wear it alone or with a lot of the other lipsticks I have. The Legacy Liquid Lipstick in Kaisa is a blush mauve that’s a little bit darker on my lips than I was hoping for.

Thrive Kaisa Liquid Lipstick

I’ll write more about Thrive Causemetics in the future when I get my new order but I am excited to talk about the mission of the brand. Every time you buy from Thrive you are donating a product to other women who need help to thrive in their own lives. So the money you spend is doing double duty – one for you and one for someone worthwhile. They are a vegan, cruelty-free brand that you can feel great about.

KBShimmer Wander-ful World

Bringing beauty to my life is KBShimmer. I haven’t written about the brand in a long time but I have several of their permanent collection polishes you will love as much as I do. The very first brand I ever bought a holographic polish from was KBShimmer and it’s remained a favorite.

Wander-ful World is a linear holographic shade with micro size glitter and a medium glitter load. It’s stunning and perfect for spring (or any time). It’s an electric magenta that is a stand out but it’s not going to get you arrested by the glitter police. It’s subtle actually. The colors you see in the bottle are what you’ll see on your nails. Don’t be surprised if people grab your hand to check out this 100% vegan and cruelty free delight.

    There is something that I wanted to try from Thrive, but I can’t remember what it is! The lipstick is a very pretty shade, and the kb shimmer polish is gorgeous! I paid a fortune for my Simmons mattress about 10 years ago. The salesman told me it would be the last mattress I would ever have to buy, but now I’m not so sure.

  5. Courtney | 23rd Apr 19

    I spent almost $200 with Thrive Causemetics and found them to very much be a mixed bag. the Overnight mask is lovely though!
